Layers of Emotion

I love images that have layers of emotion.

They are in the subtle details, like how the mom’s hair bulges from the tightness of her son’s hug.

My favorite detail of this image is the father.  It’s the way he is smiling while he looks downward, as if to give his wife and son a moment of privacy.  Or maybe it’s a smile of pride in his family.  Whatever the story is, this image makes me think…

And feel.

[Photography Tip:  Be aware of the people and things around your main subjects.  Sometimes people’s reactions to whom you are shooting is what makes the image extra special by giving it layers of emotion or stories.]

 

This week’s I Heart Faces theme is Hugs and Kisses.
